Intel 3945 with firmware-iwlwifi not working

I had wireless working on my Z61M Thinkpad under Sidux.
After a reinstall it no longer works although the card seems to be recognized by firmware-iwilfi. The card is an Intel Pro 3945ABBG.

I have this in my /etc/network/interfaces:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

allow-hotplug irda0
iface irda0 inet dhcp

allow hot-plug eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

allow hot-plug eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp
wireless-essid ap
wireless-mode managed

iwconfig shows wlan0 to be present with the right essid.

Any ideas for better configuration?
